TERRY GILLESPIE (Canadian Blues Reggae Legend!)

September 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20

 

Terry Gillespie – Bio

Terry Gillespie has sometimes been called a musical shaman, Canada’s king of roots music and even Mr. Groove — and all for good reason.

There is no showboating, no over-the-top guitar pyrotechnics. His live performances are both laid back and powerful and passionate; entertaining and captivating in a way that allows his audience to become involved as listeners — or dancers, all responding to the groove.

“Going back to the days of Ottawa’s criminally unheralded ‘Heaven’s Radio’ Terry Gillespie has been a soulful groove master.  On ‘Blue Soul’ his eclectic musical taste has honed in on a distinctive highbred of intelligent material resulting in his first long awaited ‘all blues’ release.

Terry says ‘getting inside the groove is where it’s at’.   Like Mark Knopfler, JJ Cale or JB Lenoir, he is a player whose comfortable voice perfectly suits his economical deep guitar grooves.  Nothings wasted and nothings missing.”  –  Holger Petersen, CBC’s Saturday Night Blues, CKUA’s Natch’l Blues

” Terry Gillespie possesses a magic that seems to occur right in the middle of each song. It’s what causes the hairs to rise on the back of your neck.”  – Richard Ludmerer, New York Blues and Jazz Society

This short Doc – pretty much tells you who he is and how he got that way:  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MX2732NqQ18&t=14s
